I think I need to do this because the MTA is not SENDMAIL and I need to be
able to add subdoms programmically and we will not be doing the DNS when we
Subdom will be added by the website, each new group will have a email
all at subdom.dom.net
as well as users
Auser at subdom.dom.net
The MTA will be able to accept reject subdoms (that bit is done) but I
just need to make sure that they get there !
I don't have DNS & bind to hand - why dangerous?

This would appear to be right ...
